Investikudos Weekly Update: May 24 - May 30 2010
It's been a week full of wins for Rob, Kristen but also us.
First we had Kristen and her Elle UK spread and Interview on Tuesday.
In the interview Kristen compares the paparazzi and screaming photographers to being raped. Now, is this a poor choice of words or does she have a point?
First, anyone who remembers Vancouver 2009, where Rob and Kristen were chased into their hotel can certainly see some truth in her analogy. Secondly, "rape" is an act of violation and doesn't necessarily have an sexual context, so she is not wrong in her attempt to explain what happens to her when random people call her vile things to get her attention in order to take her picture.
That being said, this is Kristen and every now and then she leaves us with a quote that sparks controversy. She doesn't do it deliberately, it's actually that she is trying to get her point across and using such stong examples means it truly is a big deal to her. Maybe she could have explained differently instead of taking the brunt for something now, but at least she was honest. If anything we should all respect that even if we don't agree with th way she worded it.
In the same interview she also shows the interviewer a photo on her I-Pod, namely one of Jella, her cat and a "deliciously handsome young man" with his arms around her and Jella which can only be Rob. People who assume otherwise should really know better but are still entitled to believing it could be Taylor, Michael or any other guy.
On Tuesday Rob's mum and sister attended a Charity Event in Rob's name, but Rob did contribute wwith a self designed balloon.
